MCF Beneficiaries
Posted: 4th May 2017

Our wide range of support and services help Masonic families and individuals facing hardship or a personal crisis to rebuild their lives and recover their independence. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, over the past 12 months we were able to assist 4,500 members of the Masonic community with grants amounting to £14.2 million.

How it breaks down

During the last 12 months, we have provided over £14.2 million in support of Masonic families experiencing a financial, health or family need.

  • £2.5 million was given to households in financial distress, who were unable to afford everyday living costs.
  • £3 million helped people access the medical treatment, mobility aids, home adaptations, respite care and counselling they need to live healthy and independent lives.
  • £3.5 million helped parents afford IT equipment, course materials, school uniforms and extracurricular activities for their children in full-time education.
  • £5.1 million was provided to support the RMBI in funding a range of nursing, residential and dementia care to meet the needs of older people.
